Rwandan Convicted of Genocide

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/19/world/africa/19rwanda.html?_r=1&hp
ACCRA, Ghana — A senior Rwandan military officer charged with being one of the masterminds of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda was convicted on Thursday by a United Nations court in Tanzania of genocide and sentenced to life in prison. Col. Theoneste Bagosora, 67, is the most senior military official to have been convicted in connection with the genocide, in which bands of Hutu massacred 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu. He was a leading Hutu extremist and the cabinet director for Rwanda’s Defense Ministry at the start of the slaughter. He and three other senior army officers had been on trial since 2002 at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which is based in Arusha, Tanzania.
…ah but WHO ACTUALLY SHOT DOWN the plane carrying the Rwandan General that was used as the excuse and catalyst for the genocide.
